Kings Lynn GB
This processor though the now older ivy bridge architecture is still an excellent choice for current system builds.

Great bang for buck with a standard clock of 3.4ghz and with the right motherboard and cooling (essential might i add!) can achieve a stable clock of 4.8ghz...not bad for the price point.

A good multi tasking processor too for video editing or whatever else you may throw at it.
None so far the product has been flawless.

Really powerful just as good as an i7 hardly any difference considering the price difference. The default fan is good enough for the time being i have had no heat problems after running mid intensive games.

Was using the same GPU (660ti overclocked) with an Intel dual-core processor and noticed a significant performance increase and higher FPS in Battlefield 3 after changing to this CPU. (also moved from 8GB DDR2 to 8GB DDR3 in the new motherboard so may also have helped a little - but I suspect the new CPU was the key-factor).

Haven't overclocked it as yet due to being able to play BF3 on Ultra without any performance issues so far so haven't felt the need as yet - so I can't comment on how well mine performs on that level.

Currently getting 30° on idle and around 45°-50° max after playing BF3 for countless hours on with an Antec 920 cooler.

I was building my gaming rig on a budget so after reading many reviews it came apparent that an i7 is not going to give any drastic improvement in gaming over an i5 so that's why I went with this CPU to be able to overclock it if needed to play Ultra - glad I didn't spend the additional £100 as not had any problems so far. Time will tell when BF4 comes out!
Still a bit pricey since now the Haswells are out, was hoping to get a bit cheaper but probably still worth the additional £10 compared to a Sandybridge as I believe Ivybridge supports PCIe v3 whereas Sandybrige doesn't - just to take into account if you have a PCIe v3 GPU and are bothered about the additional support for it (although I believe it's not all that noticeable compared with PCIe v2).

Also note, Ivybridge runs slightly hotter than Sandybridge so make sure you have a decent cooler if you intend to overclock.

Does exactly what it says on the tin, fast, cool, over clocks and build a pretty good hackingtosh with it.
None apart from a little bit more expensive than equivalent AMD. offerings. But for a hackingtosh a lot easier than an AMD

Fast (almost 3x faster than previous AMD chip on video encoding), runs cool and quiet even with retail cooler. Easy to fit. Energy efficient.
None so far.

Very fast
Doesn't struggle
since its the 3570k it's great for overclocking, will do in the future but for now it's fine with the turbo boost which I've never needed
I dropped it (while it was in its tiny bit of plastic casing) and it still works though I wouldn't recommend dropping it
Comes with the cool 'intel inside' sticker
